'06 TJ -Something rolling inside tailgate

I think I have something rolling around inside my tailgate -maybe a washer or something. As I go around corners I hear it roll from one side to the other and then back when I turn the other direction.

I've removed the spare tire bracket, there is a plastic louvered panel underneath. It looks like it can be removed but I don't want to break it, especially if there is a proper way to remove.
Anyone have any advice for opening the tailgate?

Thanks

It pops off, however usually one of the clips breaks. Try taking the latch cover and latch assembly off and see if you can get to what ever is rattling around.
